    In the Savate clubs you'll learn first La Boxe Française savate (the competition form) and La canne. After you received the "Silver Gloves" level, You can start with Savate Défense.

    Some clubs will learn you also Le Batôn ( baseball bat type of stick), knife fighting and freestyle wrestling as you start Savate Défense, but this isn't standard and these clubs you'll only find in France and Belgium.

    I've seen a couple of Savate fighters in ISKA strikeforce matches.... They do well

    Savate looks really ungraceful and clumsy so I don't like it.

    I think it looks graceful as hell. Smooth like butter.

    You're just jealous that Bruce Lee loves me more than you.

    Savate seems fine to me. It has all the elements of a great style, although I can't say I care much for the ruleset.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."
    -A.J. Newton, Boxing.

    Man, that upkicking/downfighting bit looked a tad silly, but I've always loved what Savate seems to have down better than most: counter-kicking.
